    He scored twice on Amir (IIRC). Most of his damage was done against our other bigs. And Amir shouldn't be guarding KG in the game anyway.

    His rebounding,energy, and defense will help in this series if he plays, just like it would've in every other.

    Also Max's ability to recover, and play the pick and roll are going to be important. I think he should be playing about the same or more than Dyess.

    I have noticed that. I think it is because he is really smart and everything seems simple to him.

    Notice how Flip never starts any sentence with that word.

    lpgrl, max has actually averaged more minutes in the playoffs than dice, and i haven't really seen flip afraid to go to him in crunch time when he's playing well. i also don't have a big problem seeing dice in crunch time after he did so much for us in game 6 and is great at getting offensive rebounds when it matters.

    A lot of times Rip starts his sentences with "like I said"....even though it's the first time he has mentioned whatever he is saying.

    You know, there are so many "you know's" in their sentences, you know.

    In terms of jumping the passing lanes, stripping the ball and generally forcing turnovers, the Pistons did to the Magic what the 76ers did to the Pistons. They need to keep it up against the Celtics and look to push the ball upcourt in those situations before Boston can set up its D.

    Hope Rip is ready to run in circles the entire game in order to wear down Allen/Rondo.

    One thing I noticed a while ago is that NBA players have really gotten into the habit of ending sentences with "... and things of that nature."

    I guess they have to give so many interviews and soundbites that they just spit their comments out like robots. Flip obviously has his own comfort phrases.

    How have we not gotten to.


    Chauncey (and others in the parlance of our times)... "blah blah blah, you know what I'm sayin'?"


    "Yes Sir"

    No doubt the "you know what I'm sayin comment" is a slang of the times that means "do you understand me" and is just a longer version of the "you knows" that most interviewees will throw in there to elaborate and extend a point. Could be called a run on sentence.

    I heard it more 5 years ago than I do now. When my son used to day in his sentences, I would just refer back, NO I don't know what you are saying...:)

    Remember the Ernest country version of this was "ya know what-a-mean?"

    I agree with this 100%.

    I just don't think that all of a sudden we are going to see it happen. Yeah, the Pistons will come out with energy and yes I love the underdog role, but I NEED TO SEE this effort and heart we keep referencing! Show me and I'll believe it. Not just for one game either. If the Pistons do not show it for the ENTIRE series, they are going to go fishing in less than two weeks.

    I really like the fact that the series is starting in Boston. Maybe (hopefully) our Pistons will come out with a greater sense of urgency that they otherwise might not have in a game-1 situation at home.

    :gun1: Boston

    I think if the Pistons can get this 1st game we might have a good chance of sweeping.

    Think about it. They have not won a playoff game on the road yet so a win in game 1 is really going to have them questioning themselfs. They had 7 more reg season wins but they are 8-6 in the Playoffs wheras the Pistons are 8-3.

    I'd LOVE to see a sweep max!

    ...and whoever the Lakers face out west (hopefully Spurs), I'd love to see them sweep L.A. as well!

    Wouldn't it be cool if D-Stern's Celtics vs Lakers dream match-up was swept right out of the post season!

    Note to Stern: This would be a great way for you to prove that the NBA isn't fixed!

    The best way would have be to not %%%% the Mavs AND PE #1 MARK CUBAN out of their title in 06', as Bill Simmons said, any conspiracy theories DIE that instant, for at least 15 years.

    I think the Celtics match up too well with Detroit for a sweep to happen even if Detroit beats them in Game 1.

    There are currently 13 members and 77 guests on this forum. 42 in the game archive. I just thought it curious.

    These were the badest most consistant cats all season.
    Reguardless of their less than stellar P/O perfoormance.
    We need 1 road win.
